VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: NOKOMIS 5-W is a concentrated liquid, non-hazardous cleaner. Can be used full strength or diluted with fresh or salt water. NOKOMIS 5-W is marketed in plastic containers.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: Dilution ratios are determined by the individual cleaning application. For washing equipment contaminated with soluble crude and/or bunker fuel oil use a 5:1 cleaning solution. Spray or brush onto surface, agitate with a stiff bristle brush, and rinse with fresh or salt water. For pressure washing, pre-spray surface with concentrate and allow to dwell on surface one to ten minutes (depending on age of oil). For shoreline areas and beaches with rocky breakwaters contain the area of beach sand and gravel by creating a sand bather around a small contaminated area. Spray contaminated area with a 10:1 solution. Add salt or freshwater, agitate surface to help release oil from sand. Allow time for oil to surface and recover oil. To clean larger tidal rock surfaces, apply 5:1 or 20 percent mixture of NOKOMIS 5-W. Spray solution onto rocks with a garden type pump sprayer. Agitate with a stiff bristle brush. Allow to dwell on surface until surface looks soluble. Contain with a boom or use oil absorbent pads to recover oil.
3. Conditions for Use: Fresh or salt water can be used.
